In my previous article I attributed a quote to Pope Francis, which has turned out to be fake, although I found it in about six different places including the Washington Times, Drudge and Jews Views. In the interest of integrity I stand corrected.
Pope Francis did not say the following-
“Jesus Christ, Mohammed, Jehovah, Allah. These are all names employed to describe an entity that is distinctly the same across the world. For centuries, blood has been needlessly shed because of the desire to segregate our faiths. This, however, should be the very concept which unites us as people, as nations, and as a world bound by faith. Together, we can bring about an unprecedented age of peace, all we need to achieve such a state is respect each others beliefs, for we are all children of God regardless of the name we choose to address him by. We can accomplish miraculous things in the world by merging our faiths, and the time for such a movement is now. No longer shall we slaughter our neighbors over differences in reference to their God.”
The last thing I would want to do is bear false witness – so please be advised, I was tricked and passed it on- – Pastor Bill Randles
